The Paint Creek Folklore Society

presents the

46th Annual Tin Whistle Concert

Tin Whistle Flier 2017

with headliners:


This Celtic-style Michigan band features up-tempo jigs and reels, as well as sea shanties waltzes. They and vocals where the three voices blend beautifully. The group features Dee Dee Tibbits on hammered dulcimer, whistle, and hurdy gurdy; Bruce Macartney on fiddle, guitar and  concertina; and Tom Krause on guitar, mandolin, bouzouki and bass. 


The Catbird Seat

This Lansing-based duo has a repertoire that   favors traditional and contemporary Celtic, folk, Great Lakes, and vintage pop. Dulcimer and autoharp player Wanda Degen and    guitar and flutist Kay Rinker-O’Neil both love to sing, and the music they weave together features fine harmony singing interspersed with some lovely and lively instrumentals. We know you’ll love them!

A Paint Creek Sampler with:

Andy Mather

Former PCFS president and an all-around nice guy, Andy plays clever and touching originals and obscure covers on a century-old guitar named Martine.

Edna Garte  

Edna took a couple years off from Paint Creek and we’re delighted to have her back! She has been making music and writing songs for most of her life. Several have received widespread airplay on folk and acoustic programs.
